After a serious head injury in 1997, Rick Simpson sought relief from his medical condition through the use of medicinal hemp oil. When Rick discovered that the hemp oil (with its high concentration of T.H.C.) cured cancers and other illnesses, he tried to share it with as many people as he could free of charge, curing and controlling literally hundreds of people’s illnesses… but when the story went public, the long arm of the law snatched the medicine — leaving potentially thousands of people without their cancer treatments — and leaving Rick with unconstitutional charges of possessing and trafficking marijuana.
Throughout man’s history hemp has always been known as the most medicinal plant in the world. Even with this knowledge, hemp has always been used as a political and religious football. Watch the documentary Run From The Cure to understand more about using cannabis as a cure for cancer and other medical problems.
In the film, Rick says that, “…big business and pharmaceutical companies worldwide have withheld the cure for cancer and countless other medical conditions.”
